Year of the Horse

1978. The year I was born....also being the year of the horse. I never really felt that this truly signinfied "me", but after doing

an amazing session with TWO incredible models....well, I'm thinking that the horse may just be my new animal of choice. I have

never done a shoot like this before; I find photographing dogs is SUCH a challenge that I've never been interested in doing

"non-people" pics. A past client contacted me, and seeing as I really wasn't happy with how the last job went I decided to take

this on and hopefully redeem myself. As you can see, I lucked out in all major areas......lighting, amazing genes ( thanks to

Miss K and her beautiful horse Lena) AND comfort in front of the camera. I couldn't have asked for anything more.....well,

other than a smaller belly that was getting a little uncomfortable to lie on for all the low angles and my lack of "stamina", but

heck...I can't have it all:)



Needless to say, I am absolutely thrilled with how this session went and thank Miss K and her Mum for having faith in me to

capture a very special relationship...it really was a treat!


I hope you love them as much as I do:)
